Subject: Very Good
This was a most enjoyable story. The female reader has a pleasant voice and reads very well. The only minor flaw is that there were a few stumbles and repeated words that should have been edited out. But that's nitpicking. All in all well done.

This is one of my favorites.

NCIS, CIS and Bones rolled into one old London mystery.

The story surrounds the disappearance of a well to do Egyptologist. He vanishes without notice. He also has created a bizarre will, which is a big part of the mystery.

Dr. Thorndyke, a lawyer and a doctor, is probably the first pathologist detective. This story uses some very interesting forensics techniques to solve the mystery.
